<p>shutter or the shoes, though I had as much to do with it as him; if we had got clear off we could have spent it all in two hours; so see what a mess we have got into—he said he would ask Mr. Disney to speak for him—that he had dealt with Mr. Disney, and had bought the pair of shoes of him that he had on—he said if I could put it square for him he would treat me to anything, or give me anything—he said at the station house, that he had never stolen anything before—they both offered to make it up with Mr. Disney, and offered to pay anything be charged for the damage.</p>

<p>minutes to 7 o'clock—I went out and saw a light in her bedroom—I sent my wife for assistance to one place, and my servant to another—I stayed there some time, till assistance came—a noise was made outside, and the light was put out—I went round to secure the two back doors, and the back part of the house; I stopped there some time, and the door was tried to be opened from the inside; and after that the light appeared at the window over the door, and the curtain was pulled on one side, and then there was a second attempt to open the door—my wife came round and told me something—I left two of the neighbours, one at each door, and went round in front and heard some one say, "Fire!"—I saw a poker between the doorpost and the door, to force it open, as it was being held—several stood outside the door, but they heard "Fire!" called inside, gave way, and a man came out and passed me; then a second man came out, who I seized; it was the prisoner—he struck me with a poker over the right hand before I got hold of him—that was because I tried to get hold of the poker, and then he struck me across the jaw—I retained him; he had a crowbar, or

<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) between the door and the door post—I tried to get it back again—the man that had the poker in his hand said twice, "D—n your eyes, shoot;" and as he said that, the two young men who had hold of the door ran away—they were stronger inside than I was—they wrenched the door open, and pulled the door towards them, and two men rushed out—as they came out, this poker, which was in one of their hands, poked me in the chest—I got one by his coat, and the other by his collar—the first one got away—I held the second one by the collar, till several persons sang out that he was a young man well respected, and a neighbour; and I let him go, and assisted in taking another, who was in the yard—the one I had by the coat, and who got from me, did not get away from the premises—somebody else stopped him, and I helped to take him—the prisoner is the man—I am posi

<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence</hi> (
<hi rend="italic">written</hi>). I am entirely innocent, and by a careful investigation of the witnesses it will be fully proved; Ellen Bond stated at the Police-court, on being cross-examined, that the half sovereign now produced might have been the same that she gave to the prisoner in change, and she did not see the prisoner change the one she gave her; she had the two half sovereigns by her a month or upwards, and where she deposited them any person in the house could have changed them, as she never kept her drawers locked, and when her father gave her the two half sovereigns she never examined them, and cannot say whether they were good or bad; Mr. Bond stated the two half sovereigns he gave his daughter were both good; he gave them to her about four or five weeks ago, and his daughter's drawers and boxes were always kept locked, and no one in the house could have any access to them; this statement of Mr. Bond differs entirely with the last witness, his daughter, who stated that her drawers where she kept her money were not locked, and any one in the house could have gained an easy access to them; it is plain and evident that the whole of the case rests upon the evidence of Mr. Bond, and his statement is nothing more than suppo
<lb/>sition; it is impossible for him to swear the half sovereign now produced was changed by the prisoner for one of those he gave his daughter four or five weeks back, as he was not in the shop at the time, and saw nothing that transpired between the prisoner and his daughter, and Ellen Bond likewise says she did not see the prisoner change the half sovereign she gave her, but acknowledged at the Police-court that there was a bad half sovereign in the shop in a box where they keep their scales behind the counter, and the other witnesses, Miss Goldsburgh and the policeman, saw nothing of the occurrence; I certainly did not know the half sovereign was a bad one, and should have taken it bad not the witness Ellen Bond offered me another one, while she was examining it on the counter.</p>

<lb/>ting them away for years—I missed my little boy's boots, which he had taken off and left in the bar—I missed a silk handkerchief and a pocket hand
<lb/>kerchief from the bar—I examined the back kitchen shutters; they were broken in pices—a person by breaking the shutters could open the window and get in—the window opened outside—if a person got in the house by that window, he would have access to the bar, and to any other part of the house—no part of the house was disturbed beside the bar—I have seen the boots since, a part of them has been cut away—there is a wall in the rear of my house about seven or eight feet high, and the next morning I found this shoe on the outside of that wall.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Witness.</hi> Yes; I took the other two pri

<hi rend="italic">Jem</hi> gave them to me"—Hannon replied, "You had better say I keep you altogether"—on the Saturday before that, I had gone to Mr. Collingbourn's, a pawnbroker, at Wandsworth, where I got two silver coins, which I have here—when I went to take Hannon and Ben
<lb/>nett, I took these two coins with me—I showed them to Hannon, and he said, "I received the large one from
<hi rend="italic">Little Dick</hi>, meaning Irvin, and the other I received from
<hi rend="italic">Cottage</hi>, which is a nickname for Jones, and I know them to be the pieces I gave to Amos Fuller to sell in Wandsworth"—he said, "I knew you again; I knew you was after me, for I saw you take
